Excerpt: Wedge known for epic films (Ice Age), made an epic mistake here. First of all, where is the plot? I could consider a plot base (Bud by queen, facing the moon light to grow the forest again.), but where is the development? Is this epic-ness ?
Excerpt: There is some truth to the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover," but at the same time, it doesn't always apply. In the case of Epic, I got exactly what I anticipated; a generic kids' fantasy film, with not an original bone its body.
Excerpt: sure the title is a bit misleading even though it deals with a bunch of tiny human like creatures that disguise themselves as dead animals and grasshoppers and fight a war to protect their lands. Enter the actual humans in which one girl gets shrunk down to size then the real adventure begins.
Summary: It's "epic" all right... "Epic"-ally boring. I had Fern Gully swimming around in my head the entire movie. Although it took on an environmental theme, the storyline did not convince me that it was fighting the "green fight" the way it had intended. The voicing was OK. The animation was average.
Summary: Epic is anything but epic in almost everyway. The movie so unaspiring that about 30 minutes into the film you just don't care about anything that is going on. A film to see with your kids once and then never again.
Summary: A good looking, but boring animation. I'd say about twenty minutes in to this film I started to just not care about The Leaf men or those things they were fighting and yes the story with the girl and her father somewhat matters overall whatever.
Excerpt: When a movies title is literally Epic, It had better deliver on the promise that title implies. Epic works fine as an animated action/adventure film (a horribly maligned genre in my opinion,) but it never becomes as epic as its title promises.
